Last week, I bought some tapioca and wanted to make some kueh out of it but when I had the time, my pantry stock was low. I don't have the coconut milk that I needed.
Since now stock is replenished, I had better get moving, if not, another batch of food into the bin again.
I hate throwing food away especially after reading yesterday's news that people in some part of the world are starving. I still can remember so vividly the hunger child's face on that page. It really breaks my heart. Children should not have to suffer.
Anyway, despite not liking coconut milk but I like tapioca. With home cooked, I can even control the sweetness. When I saw this recipe, I was eager to find out the combination of a chocolate with coconut. Though the chocolate is not the real thing but rather chocolate emulco, I am still curious.
The kueh turned out really nice but it would have been better I think if it is real chocolate. hahhaa
I think I better grab some sleep before sending the girl to her Sunday school. Had a really long day yesterday and needed to wake up early to complete some orders.
Have a good weekend folks! The weather is just so awesome today.

What you need:
350g grated tapioca
125ml thick coconut milk
100g castor sugar
1 tbsp chocolate emulco
few drops of yellow colouring
Combine tapioca, coconut milk, egg and sugar and mix thoroughly. Divide into two portions.
Add chocolate emulco in one and yellow colouring in the other. You can leave it to blank if you don't want colouring. The outcome will be brown and white.
Line a 6" tray with banana leaves, pour yellow tapioca mixture, and spread evenly. Steam for 40 mins.
Pour in the chocolate mixture over the yellow kueh and continue to steam for another 40 mins.
Cool kueh before cutting.
